Here, you can read about previous NOMAD and related workshops - other computational materials science events are available here.

NOMAD Academic Workshops

Academic Workshop I (with code developers)

In Jan 2016, NOMAD and CECAM held a workshop "Towards a Common Format for Computational Materials Science Data", where representatives of more than 20 leading material science simulation packages worked together on solving long standing issues.

You can read about the outcome of the workshop in this Psi-k Highlight.

Our report Data formats and compression also describes our work on translating the data of all important codes into a standardized, code-independent, format.

Academic Workshop II 

Our second Academic Workshop, co-sponsored by CECAM, will focus on Big-Data Driven Materials Science. The workshop will be held in Lausanne, Switzerland, September 11 - 13, 2017. You can learn more here.


NOMAD Summer School

NOMAD Summer 

NOMAD Summer is a hands-on course on tools for novel materials discovery, run in collaboration with Psi-k. The course is open to participants from both industry and academia and runs September 25 - 29, 2017 in Berlin, Germany. You can learn more here.


NOMAD Industry Meetings 

Industry Meeting I

In March 2016, we held our first Industry Meeting to inform a variety of industries about the NOMAD Laboratory and to learn what types of tools they would like to see developed.

You can read our report of the first Industry Meeting here.

Industry Meeting II

We met with our industry colleagues again in February 2017 to update them on our progress and gain their feedback on the tools we developed in the first 15 months of the project. You can read our report on the first 15 months here.

Industry Meeting III

We'll host our third and final Industry Meeting in London, February 5 - 6, 2018. If you are interested in attending, please contact
